    Hi Future,

    Can you check if your host-only adapter has correct IP assigned? You can try ifconfig command and see what IP it has assigned. It should be something like 192.168.x.x. If you see incorrect IP you can try checking your host-only adaptor configuration.

    Hope this helps,

    We had the same issue. It was solved by:

    1. Install the VMWare tools as is described at http://gregcarriger.wordpress.com/2012/05/21/400/.
    2. The IP address provided by the sandbox was not correct. In our case, by typing “ifconfig eth0”, the correct address is revealed in the “inet addr” text. You might also try the address from “ifconfig eth1”.

    We use VMware Player version 5.0.1 build-894247.

    Good luck!


    Hi David,

    Thanks for the information on how you solved the issue.

    I am running Ubuntu 12.10 host using VmWare 5.0.2 with linux tools installed
    The initial install of the HortonworksVM installed with very strange IP addresses – way off the expected 192.168.1.xxx that my system is on. Naturally my browser on the host did not successfully point to the address. Now the Host-Only adaptor is set for eth0 and with ifconfig used to change it to and eth1 changed to and restarted the VM still says my browser should point to

    I’m a bit out of my depth running virtual networking but I assume the Host-Only option on eth0 allows the VM to punch out to my host browser but I’d guest the apache instance on the guest is pointing the wrong direction so I think I need to fix the apache settings. I really hope not, those can be tricky.

    Ideas anyone?


    Hi Rupert,
    It would probably be best to start a new thread on this. Have you tried using the ip address and 70 to see if you can reach the webpage since that is what seems to the ip?
